This year seems EPIC for these to me. I'll keep a running list of stuff that would absolutely piss me off if I was a fan.

Jax: Harvey at 8 for 1,3,3,5(?)
Det: Cherilus at 17
Bal: Flacco at 18
Car: Otah at 19
Atl: Baker at 21
Ten: Johnson at 24
Sea: Jackson at 28

Long over Dorsey

Ryan over Dorsey
McFadden over Dorsey

Otah at #19 wouldn't bug me aside from the awful trade and the fact that they could have picked Albert at #13 instead of a time-splitting RB who lacks NFL-level explosiveness.

I agree with all of those except Otah.

He went right around where he was supposed to go. Carolina wanted him all along, traded back and still got him.

I think Steve Smith and Jake Delhomme could go under the radar in fantasy drafts, so Otah isn't a bad pick.

Where do they move Jordan Gross?

Carolina took Jonathan Stewart with their first pick and then traded up to get Otah, giving away their 2nd and next year's first. Otah wasn't a reach for where he went, but they gave up a buttload for him.

noa

Otah is bad considering how much they traded to get him.

taking guard in the first round is considered by many to be a reach.

I still can't get over the way the Eagles raped the Panthers.

The low risk high reward scenario Albert presents has me really excited. He projects to be an excellent LT. Worst case he ends up occupying a guard spot for a decade.

My bad. I missed that trade.

BUT, Carolina wanted and needed him so in their minds, he was worth it.

Only time will tell if it was the correct move.

Flacco at 18 is a HUGE reach.

JFC.

He's not going to be a guard, Dude.

And IF he is a guard (because the Chiefs snag a left tackle with more ability), he's be a HOF guard, picking up where Will Shields left off.

Are you telling me you wouldn't choose Will Shields with the 15th pick?

I would. In a heartbeat.
